Elemental Awareness provides scholarships for Inner-City youth


This past summer, the Elemental Awareness Foundation sent 35 kids up to Element YMCA Skate Camp for a week in the woods.  While there, they got to skate and learn about the environment through the Elemental Awareness wilderness education program.  “EA” is committed to promoting environmental stewardship and social consciousness through their programs.  Camp enrollment is now open for the summer of 2012.  Click here for more details about how you can sign up for camp.  To see photos from camp, click here.

Video from the 2011 MAKE IT COUNT CONTEST series in Rincon, Puerto Rico is up! Congrats to Yariel Melendez, the overall winner of the contest!

Dylan Christopher is a 23-year old with a mission… He is riding his bicycle across the country, and documenting the entire voyage. As an instructor for Elemental Awareness at the Element YMCA Skate Camp, the EA family have come together to sponsor Dylan’s adventure. Dylan welcomes anyone interested in getting involved, whether it be donations, providing a couch to sleep on along his journey, or sharing of useful information… If you’d like to help out in anyway possible, please contact him here.

Check out Dylan’s Website Picture Me Rollin‘ for more details.

Element Advocate Amber B Dianda caught up with Dylan on his way from San Fransico to San Diego to wish him well, and I snapped a couple of photos. Check out the post here.
